On June 4, 1992, the Ingush Republic was formed by the Law of the RSFSR. In connection with the difficult transport situation and isolation from the outside world, in which the newly formed republic found itself, it became necessary to create and establish air communications. It was decided to create its own airport as soon as possible on the basis of the former branch of the Armavir Military Flight School.

In a short time, competent specialists were trained for all airport services and their certification was carried out.
